How To Make Blueberry Peach Summer Salad

First of all make sure your fruits are very fresh and in season for the best quality salad. I like to get organic blueberries and peaches. It makes a world of difference in full flavor for the salad. I like to use mixed baby greens, but I have made it with spinach or romaine lettuce before as well. They both work well, but I personally like the baby mixed greens. I use two different onions. I use the red onion for a stronger onion taste and beautiful color and the green onions for a mild onion balance that is not over powering for the fruit. I also like the english cucumbers as well. They have small seeds and a lot of flavor.

What To Put On Blueberry Peach Summer Salad

I enjoy a light vinaigrette on this salad because I don’t want it to over power the delicate flavors of the fruit. I use my Peach Champagne Vinaigrette for the topping of this salad. It is nice and light, savory, salty and a little sweet. It is thick and creamy without having to use dairy or nuts in it. The peach blends up so nice with the oil that it whips into a light creamy consistency. Perfect for clinging to your salad. I am sure a poppyseed dressing would work well also. I will try and work on a new recipe for that.

Of course this salad has to have some crunch and I prefer the roasted sunflower seeds with this combo for fruits and vegetables. Roasting the seeds really gives this salad a nice toasted flavor that is subtle but noticed. The burst of sweet with the golden raisins is extra special in each bite with chickpeas and perfect avocados. Yes! This salad takes center stage for me because it just has so much balance. Take this salad to your next BBQ or party and it will be sought over. It’s just so pretty and perfectly refreshing. Try it for yourselves and let me know how you like it. I hope you enjoy this beautiful delicious Blueberry Peach Summer Salad as much as we do.
